Wycombe are still facing a massive fight to not drop down to League One at the end of this Championship campaign.

They are 11 points away from safety as it stands with so much work to do to try and get safe.

Birmingham are just above the drop zone and have been struggling to put wins on the board recently as well.

Who gets a precious three points out of this fascinating showdown at Adams Park?

Wycombe Preview – Can Wycombe deliver a home win?

Three points for Wycombe would be huge at this stage of things.

They have lost six of their last eight games (W1 D1) the victory in that sequence happening against Cardiff.

It is a W2 D4 L6 record that Wycombe have taken on home soil this season in the league.

While they are bottom of the league, they do have games in hand over some of those above them.

They have two in hand over Birmingham and could close the gap to nine on them with a victory in this game.

In the match outright for Championship football betting, Wycombe are the 21/10 underdogs* (odds recorded 18:00 GMT Sunday, 31st January).

One positive that they have going for them is that they have scored in all but one of their last nine league games.

So that’s been a good return.

The big issues for them however have been in defence. On the weekend they were smashed 7-2 by Brentford.

Wycombe have conceded at least two goals in three of their last four games.

Our betting prediction:
Draw/Birmingham HT/FT

Bet at William Hill

(odds recorded 18:00 GMT Sunday, 31st January)


The Chairboys have managed only the eight home goals this season, an average of 0.67 per game at Adams Park.

So there are clear problems at both ends of the pitch which obviously explains the tough position they are in.

In the head to head against Birmingham, things don’t look great for Wycombe either.

They have lost their last three home games against them in all competitions.

In this season’s earlier meeting though they banked a 2-1 win at St Andrew’s.


Birmingham Preview – Can the Blues take the points?

Birmingham’s current form has not been the greatest as of late, winning one of their last eight.

It has been a W4 D6 L2 record way from home by the Blues.

They have actually done better on their league road travels than they have done at home.

Each of the four wins that they have picked up on their league travels this season have actually been against teams who are currently in the top half of the table.

There has been a lack of goalscoring output from them across the season.

Birmingham only averaged 0.7 goals per game for the campaign.

They have netted 10 goals in their 12 road games.

But the big positive for them is that they have been tight in defence away from home.

Birmingham have conceded at an average of 0.67 goals per road fixture.

The Blues are a quote of 13/10 to come up with the away three points from this game.

Either way, this looks as if it is going to be a low scoring game.

So for football betting, we would have a look under 2.5 goals at a quote of 8/11* (odds recorded 18:00 GMT Sunday, 31st January).

In total, Birmingham have taken a clean sheet in 50% of fixtures.

Another big trend with the Blues is that they have been level at the halftime break in 10 of their 12 road games (D1).

That makes it worth having a look at the half time draw here at 21/20* (odds recorded 18:00 GMT Sunday, 31st January).


Wycombe vs Birmingham Betting Advice

We would actually swing towards the away win being a little more likely in this one, but we see it tight all the way.

The half time draw definitely looks a good punt at a 21/20 quote* (odds recorded 18:00 GMT Sunday, 31st January).

It should be that tight after the quick turnaround of matches as well taken into consideration.
